About Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Heartburn is the most common symptom of a disease called GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease. For many, symptoms are mild, but for some, GERD is a daily, severe problem with lifelong implications.
Whether you have heartburn, regurgitation, swallowing difficulties or even symptoms in your throat, such as cough and hoarseness, GERD can make your life miserable. It affects eating habits, work productivity, sleep and your overall quality of life.
Some try to modify their lifestyle, others take antacids or other over the counter medications. Many are prescribed powerful medications designed to be taken for life. When left untreated, your esophagus can become irreversibly damaged and esophageal cancer can even result.
